“Cagney & Lacey” star Tyne Daly was forced to pull out of “Doubt: A Parable” on Broadway after she was “unexpectedly hospitalized” during previews due to an illness.

“Ms. Daly was unexpectedly hospitalized on Friday and unfortunately needs to withdraw from the production while she receives medical care; she is thankfully expected to make a full recovery,” the Roundabout Theatre Company said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“With respect and admiration for Tyne, we wish her the best and a quick recovery,” director Scott Ellis said in a statement, according to the Reporter. “We are grateful that Amy Ryan said yes—in a quick minute—to join our company and take on the role of Sister Aloysius. We deeply appreciate Isabel Keating, who remarkably stepped in with a day of rehearsal and allowed us to get the production up on its feet during this first week of performances.”
